Where can I find information about buying CERN equipment?

As a precautionary measure due to COVID-19, sales are suspended until further notice.

In the event of an emergency, please first contact the Sales and Recuperation Service by phone (162895) before coming to Building 133.

Thank you for your understanding.

The purchase of items, sold in accordance with the 'Rebated Equipment Sale' procedure, must be paid by credit card at the time of sale.

This type of sale is builing.6412, Thursday from 13:30 to 16h.

The equipment is sold in the state and without guarantee (no return or exchange will be accepted).

Individuals who have purchased discarded equipment must leave CERN through Gate B (no entry through Gate E), under the supervision of a guard, and return the Ticket of Sale. The remaining note stands for invoice.

Individuals from outside CERN who would like to come on Thursdays from 1:30 pm to 4 pm, will have to make an appointment and send me an email with the following details, so that I can request an access card for them:

  • last name
  • first name,
  • nationality,
  • e-mail,
  • phone number,
  • date and place of birth,
  • vehicle registration number if you plan on coming by car and can not park in the Globe car park.

Once the access card has been requested, the visitor will receive a confirmation code and on the day of his arrival to CERN, he will need to go Building 33 to collect his access card.
